    Something server-side, written either in PHP, ASP, Perl, ColdFusion, or something similar.

    Even the best JavaScript's suck because anything done in the user's browser can be viewed and figured out (including usernames and passwords).

    Yes I would recommend something by the way of server side. In client side, someone can view the source and see the password

    That's not true - it is possible to make a JS login where the username and password cannot be discovered by looking at the source.

    Check out Secure Login with javascript

    But I'd still also say that server-side is better - more accessible.
